Robot gave me at the Santa Monica Pier.
Parasols are a second madness which have taken hold of me--and Ryan too, as it turns out he loves the idea of having some parasols at the beach wedding. It was the kind of idea I was hoping he would talk me out of, but instead he thinks they're adorable and now I'm trapped in unbearable, impending cuteness. As an incredibly fair skinned person, a parasol might actually be the most practical item to obtain for a beach wedding. However as I looked this morning I had a difficult time finding something simple. Every parasol I came across had feathers or streamers or giant flowers, or a monogrammed letter (and try throwing a giant "F" on something without making it look obscene). I'll keep searching and hopefully I can locate parasols in simple shades, maybe with a few painted blossoms or birds.
